We've been boarding our dog with this kennel for 5 years now and have been very happy with the service and environment. Your dog MUST be well socialized, and do well in an outdoor, large, fenced space, which is where the social hour takes place. The staff tries very hard to match temperment and physical ability when selecting dogs to socialze together outside. Brach has never come home nervous and upset--this has not been the case when boarding him in other facilities. Brach is a high energy Aussie mix--free running is his thing!
